    The key to good short times are

    Traction
    Proper suspension setup

    But MOST important................

    Drive it like you stole it

    Yup , have decent suspension as far as arms but the rest is lowering **** so no transfer , the traction is non existence cuz of tires leaving but as far as shifting well my TRANS must like me cuz I drive the **** out of it

    Lol, you haven't ****ed your tranny off yet because you haven't gotten traction yet. T5+traction+powershifting=dead T5. I've done it waaaaaay too many times. :jester:

    I will take anyone for a ride that has a stick..that wants boost ...After you ride in a Worked Auto with boost you will have a nice grin...Just remember there are very few people who can shift as fast a worked Auto..And a turbo loves a load...so with an auto thats what is does it loads it up...just pulls like a freight train...
